Bear with me on this.
I am building a thirty foot sampan trying to use traditional plank joining.
this means that (as far as my research has shown) the planks are pegged edge to edge with bedding compound between them. I have wood ordered but i think i will have a bit of ripping to do since i am not at all sure of how wide the planks need to be to fit the curves of this hull. The plans are for a 15 foot and i lofted them to thirty because 15 is just not very useful for what i want to do. (stolen from the cheap pages) and yes i do now own the plans.
since i have never done this particular type of construction I am a bit unsure of some of the detail's.
thanks in advance and i am sure i will have several thousand more questions.
